New shoes and jammy delights on Queen Street
Queen Street shoppers will hardly have missed the major renovations to the old Co-op department store over recent months. But at long last two of the new units are opening their doors.
Pride of Northumbria is the new home of Amble Development Trust’s preserve making and local food distribution enterprise. The Trust’s director, Julia Aston said, “I’d like to thank everyone who helped to bring this project together. The new units are such an improvement and we are happy that two of them are now open for business. We will be selling our preserves and hampers here and you’ll be able to see the Mad Jam Woman at work!”
The second unit is KB Shoes, run by Katherine Bennett of WL Shaw. “We decided to branch out with a little bit more fashion and more affordable footwear. There are no plans to close the other shop (on Bridge St); we’ll be still providing a fitting service and branded footwear” said Katherine.
